We here describe technical issues in setting objective tests in various areas of mathematics using Question Mark Perception’s QML language and format files, coupled with MathML mathematics mark-up and the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) syntax for producing diagrams. The plain text MathML and SVG coding can replace graphics files commonly used to display equations and diagrams in CAA packages and web pages, and have the overwhelming advantage that random parameters can be dropped into the interpreted plain text at runtime, thereby producing many millions of realisations of the underlying question style.
